My baby boy is 19 months old, he screams while he plays, while he sits in his high-chair, while he is in his cot, while he has time-out, whatever and wherever he screams, screams, screams and does not stop.
It isn't a normal screaming either, he does it as loud and horrible as he possibly can, and his favourite trick is to do it right inside our ears by surprise, making us jump and go crazy.
Does anyone else have this experience, is it normal, what should I do about it? We have been trying the time-out technique for many weeks but it has no effect. After time-out, of any interval - minutes or hours, he just smiles and laughs and starts again to scream. During time-out, either in his cot or high-chair, in the same room or in another room, he just screams like usual, it seems he doesn't care about it at all.
Is there any way to teach our baby to stop this or an alternative non-violent discipline technique to time-out? How can we find out the real reason our baby is behaving with this extremely bad and stressful way? It is ruining our lives. After hearing that screaming, it has disturbed our minds, we cannot think straight or concentrate on anything at all.
